“Think Clue. Think page-turner.”—Glamour

In development as a major motion picture produced by and starring Florence Pugh

Molly Gray is not like everyone else. She struggles with social skills and misreads the intentions of others. Her gran used to interpret the world for her, codifying it into simple rules that Molly could live by.

Since Gran died a few months ago, twenty-five-year-old Molly has been navigating life’s complexities all by herself. No matter—she throws herself with gusto into her work as a hotel maid. Her unique character, along with her obsessive love of cleaning and proper etiquette, make her an ideal fit for the job. She delights in donning her crisp uniform each morning, stocking her cart with miniature soaps and bottles, and returning guest rooms at the Regency Grand Hotel to a state of perfection.

But Molly’s orderly life is upended the day she enters the suite of the infamous and wealthy Charles Black, only to find it in a state of disarray and Mr. Black himself dead in his bed. Before she knows what’s happening, Molly’s unusual demeanor has the police targeting her as their lead suspect. She quickly finds herself caught in a web of deception, one she has no idea how to untangle. Fortunately for Molly, friends she never knew she had unite with her in a search for clues to what really happened to Mr. Black—but will they be able to find the real killer before it’s too late?

A Clue-like, locked-room mystery and a heartwarming journey of the spirit, The Maid explores what it means to be the same as everyone else and yet entirely different—and reveals that all mysteries can be solved through connection to the human heart.

IT TOOK JUST A DAY -

- to read this fabulous, entertaining, and interesting book and to put it away - up on my virtual bookcase for this years books read from cover to cover. This is the first novel that i have read in quite some time - as I usually read TRIUE CRIME, NON FICTION BOOKS on NATURE and ADVENTURE, etc. - that a see reviewed from my favorite authors in the many magazines I read - as well as books on HUMAN NATURE, PSYCHOLOGY, and on REAL and FASCINATING PEOPLE - from many years ago - up until today. I HIGHLY recommend this quick - can’t put down until you get to the end read - to anyone who has the time to truly enjoy it - as I have done - reclining in my bed - on a cold, windy, and rainy winter’s day - or at anytime at all.

A 10 STAR read in my expert opinion - but as the raring stars only go up to FIVE - that is what it got from me.

EFHJR.

Are you joking

I finished this in five hours and my jaw is on the floor. There are twists and turns down to the very last page. This is by far the best book I’ve read in a very long time. 10000/10 recommend
